What are Mobile Homes and Manufactured Homes?
Mobile homes and manufactured homes can be described as a particular type of housing that is fully constructed off-site in a factory before being transported to its final destination. This is why you may have heard these homes referred to as factory-built, or prefab homes.
For decades now, manufactured and mobile homes have been required to follow a strict set of construction and safety requirements set forth by the U.S Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). Today’s homes are held to an especially high standard for quality. They are closely examined for fire safety, ventilation, structural integrity, energy efficiency, and many other key elements of what makes a quality home.
Anyone buying a manufactured home from a reputable manufacturer or dealer can rest assured that they’re getting a durable, permanent home that will serve them well for years to come.
